  1. Dawson. You have to read the descriptions because he has several sight heights. (Gen5 sights also as they are slightly different) Usually solid rear and FO front but some glow in the darks as well you can use a black nylon broom bristle in a FO sight if you want all black sight picture. They also offer sight replacement if you put it on and have to adjust impact they will swap out for proper height sight and he even has an online calculator to help with correction.
  2. safety pin and put a small magnet on the top of the funnel to act as a counterweight to help it close when not at the bottom of the cycle.
  3. My G34 in Production Division is sighted for FO dot on at 25 yds. I can hold a 5 1/2” group or so. 125 coated at 134 PF if I miss it’s me.
  4. Burkett reload drills. Some in “Tai Chi” mode(slow and observing) or in reverse sometimes helps as well. Of course weighted with dummy rounds to simulate range day. I would like like to see some measurements between the Glock and S&W well openings stock. Thinking it might be an angular issue as well, sometimes it takes a bit for me to go back and forth from my G34 to my 1911 (with a well) to feel as smooth
  5. I have one on my G40 in 10mm and use Arredondo +5 (the pin from a TTI would hit the screw that mounts the well to the plug,so does the Cain Arms retainer bolt) which give me 20 reloadable. Just remember to see Dawson's video on setting up Glock mags with extensions there is some work to be done at the junction of mag and follower It is one of the few large frame magwells out there.
  6. Bring at least 2 x amount of ammo than match lists my local club is 170-ish so I bring 300 and preloaded magazines sometimes I just toss the whole ammo can in the trunk for practice afterwards (club membership perk) Double up on ears, foam plugs and headset. Depending on weather lots of water and a light snack or two. Show up early to help set up if you can you get to meet and greet and get acclimated while you set up and can get an early view of the stages, also help break down if you can, it is greatly appreciated. Welcome to what may very well be your new addiction Be Safe,Have Fun, and Relax it’s just a game
  7. Rubber fuel line works well depending on screw size and is less likely to collapse vs o rings learned that years ago with a Safariland 007 and a Highlander plate system don’t forget your blue Loctite when you finally get it where you want it
  8. Probably one of those Glock 7's I keep hearing about... think he meant it to go one line lower, check post below in the main subforum: I went ahead and got DQ'd today
  9. Just greased my 450 link pins last month, for the first time since it was given to me 18 or so years ago, the upper end of the arms started dragging, there was slight galling, cleaned off with a scotchbrite pad. lowers were fine but basically,... punch em out clean em up drill the link arms for needle grease gun or zerk use and reassemble.. pretty sure from my sailing days you will still need to lube the bronze/steel interface same as steel/Aluminium, I generally don't play with bronze much anymore..
  10. Currently shoot a Gen4 but looking hard at a Gen5 because of aforementioned cavernous mag well since I shoot production. I do practice Burkett Reloads until my eyes bleed but it is nice to have more if a well for those not so coordinated kind of days
  11. Then there’s the .40/10mm crowd who just clean fire three clean again and run it Worked fine for my 18” BHW barreled AR Build And I also agree with Tom Freeman shoot it awhile to settle everything in then play with pet loads.
  12. I have a Safariland 014 for my 34 that also fits my G40 for Limited. in Production I run a Black Scorpion Gear setup
  13. I bought check weights to make sure my 2 beam scales agree with each other , they didn’t but they do now and if I ever go digital or a new scale I can either calibrate or know the offset from old to new and adjust the notes/load and verify easy enough. I work only with my scales and a chronograph so as long as my scales are consistent for me I am good my notes record what the scale says and the book is used for a safe starting load mostly as there are a lot of variables between their test fixture and my firearms etc. I also know my Titanium wedding band on my scales weigh 71 grains. So there is another check weight I always have handy
  14. In to 100 round boxes pistol/20 or 50 round boxes for rifle after a gauge/chamber check then a marker swipe across the primer to show it was QC’d by me then stored in larger can. Blue for Factory ammo Red for established reloads combo of colors/stripes/primer dots etc. for developing loads. Load mags night before match/range trip i do have some bulk .45 230LRN reloads (not for match) I did that are in plastic zip loc bags but they are probably 15-20 years old and have a red marker swipe. .22s are stored in a .50 cal can in their boxes some bulk hi speed Remington are in the flip top hi cap tic tac boxes (the ones in the checkout line that are about the size of a pack of cigs. Not the little rectangle boxes I think they hold 250 tic tacs)
  15. Mostly the rail (I use a MantisX) and I would believe muzzle weight bias I have 13’ of tread tape so checkering isn’t as crucial.
  16. Thanks, figured it was as I use a Glock 34 and I remember when the whole MOS non MOS and different Gen made a difference though at the rate they push those vs. say a SP01 Bull it wasn’t an issue for long. Will have to mail them and see how close they are to getting a SP01 Bull on the list I am considering swapping platforms and I really like the SP01
  17. The 75 Bull Shadow is doesn’t specifically state a SP01 Bull Shadow ( with the rail) or Shadow2 Bull Shadow (48+ounces) is. Or are all three models considered a 75 ? sorry for confusing the situation.
  18. Any hope the SPO1 Bull Shadow will be allowed in production soon ? I am guessing it is a units sold issue ? Thinking of one with the optics cut so I can run it in CO as well possibly.
  19. Press was acting funny so I disassembled services/cleaned and lubed found the upper link pins on my 450 were borderline seized or at the least very dry causing a binding feeling now back to making ammo by the bucket full.
  20. I currently run a Glock 34 Gen4 in Production so I get to reload a lot without a funnel,.... Establish a par time then start lowering it by .10 until it gets "comfortable" then lower another .10 that puts the emphasis on speed in small bites, easily doable in Dry Fire practice,.. maybe even split it up into,drawing the mag by "bouncing" to not lag on the mag in the pouch, a Burkett drill to fine tune before and whatever you would call reacquiring grip/ sights etc. after then run them together,.. lots of ways to skin this cat and find pockets of hand speed while reinforcing consistent economical motion.
  21. Maybe this should be in training not tips how do I get a moderator to move it ?
  22. I used to do triathlons and long distance cycling events during my time away from USPSA and was wondering if anyone here “tapers” for lack of a better term, before an event or just practices/dry fires right up to the day before a match. ( no dryfiring say a night or two before a match etc.) I am wondering about other sports experience carrying over from one to another for example: season planning/periodization,specific patterns of training(sport specific strength sessions ,accuracy sessions, speed sessions, cross training scheduling etc. Also as a bonus question does anyone find themselves with what I call “match apathy” or just a lack of wanting to go to the match a week or two before the event , not burnout or overtraining, just a sort of mild “meh” passive sort of attitude vs. thrill of the hunt “git you some” hard desire drive.
  23. I ran 115 Blazer or S&B 115 with both stock RSA and a SS rod with a 12 lbs spring worked fine I have since developed a handload to run with the rod and 12 lbs spring in Production Interesting to note I do have to run factory ammo and stock RSA at the indoor GSSF league (Stock) so I do flip back and forth until the new 34 Gen5 gets here to setup as my dedicated production/CO gun.
  24. Arredondo extension here with a Glock store magwell not sure the TTI extensions will work with my magwell because that’s where the screw into the brass plug is. Maybe a carver magwell might but even carver suggests Arredondo or Taylor I think.
  25. Thanks nice to know before dropping the dollars on a few , thinking 3
